In brief: Numbness/ menopause

These symptoms are not the usually ones associated with low estrogen.
Numbness in hands and feet may be a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Other conditions can also cause this. It is vaital that you see your physician for examinations to evaluate your situation and then advise you on proper treatment.

Yes, but you want to make sure there isn't another cause, such as vitamin B12 deficiency, or diabetes.
Go get checked out by your doctor.
